 French Bread


  • 2 Tbsp dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp  salt
  • 5 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 6 cups  flour 
  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
  2. In a large bowl combine warm water (not the yeast mixure), sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups of the flour. Stir well.
  3. Add the yeast mixture to the-flour mixture. Mix together with paddle attachment.
  4. Switch over to dough hook. Add the remaining 3 cups of flour a cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Let sit in bowl for 10 minutes.
  6. When the dough has risen, turn the Kitchenaid mixer on low for a few seconds until the dough is deflated, and push dough to bottom part of bowl with a spatula. 
  7. Repeat 5 times, every ten minutes, for a total of 60 minutes of rising and then punching (or pushing) down.
  8. Divide the dough in half. Roll each half of dough in a 9×12 rectangle on a floured surface.
  9. Roll the dough up like a jelly roll (long way). Place the dough on a greased baking pan (jelly roll pan), with the seam side down. Both loaves fit on one pan.
